More Fast ForWord Research
A recent article on Fast ForWord in the Vancouver Sun starts like this:
A computer program designed for children who struggle with language and literacy has had such a profound effect in Surrey schools that the people involved say they’ve been moved to tears.
“Lives have been changed,” Sandy Collins, a speech-language pathologist, said when asked about a U.S. program being adopted by B.C. schools that’s based on years of research into neuroplasticity — the discovery that the human brain can be “rewired” to overcome learning deficiencies and disabilities.
“It’s the most important development in my 30-year career,” she added.
The article reviews how Fast ForWord works and how it helps children with reading fluency/comprehension or auditory processing difficulties.
